Good food, Good Ambience, Cheap Alchohol. Chicken Burger is delicious, Pizza not so much. Outside seating is also available.

We liked the Zone a lot. Owner and staff are really friendly and make you feel at home. I have no idea if the beer is overpriced (nothing in Bhutan costs that much anyway) and it was great to get away from the endless buffets in soul-less hotels. We had yak burgers, fries and onion rings (had to be done,... More

Our guide considered this a "special treat" for us as we had been in Bhutan for almost a week. If you've visited Bhutan, you know all the food is basically the same, so to go into a restaurant and be able to order pizzas, burgers, French fries, milk shakes, etc., can be a real treat.

We decided to try this western restaurant after yet another really bad local meal. The reviews are overwhelming positive and the restaurant is really well known but... this place is not very good. The reason i have given The Zone a 3 instead of a 2 is because the service was good, the drinks were fine and the ambience was... More

Best, maybe only, western food in Thimphu. Well known place for expats to meet with friends. Service is great, food is very good, prices are high for Bhutan, but for western food reasonable.

Small but warm and inviting. Don't let the exterior fool you. Great place to chill and unwind!! Free wifi to boot. Great burgers and pizzas. Awesome milkshakes too.

Nice relaxed atmosphere with a great mixture of local and international menu. Make sure you try the pigs trotter local style and the ribs- lovely. Just avoid Tuesdays as this is no-alcohol night and not sure they are open.

We looked for good coffee, and the Zone is the right place for Illy coffee, and some western food as burgers and French Fries. We didn't have dinner there just some coffee, the atmosphere was nice and cozy.

Great place, nice music and a large screen to watch the world cup games. Food was great and service very friendly. The burgers and fish and chips were awesome, went back twice for more. Enough literature to keep the boys busy. Very nice cosy place.

If you want great pizza with a much much more extensive menu eat at Seasons-it's so much better The inside of the zone is dim and feels like a bar, if you outside you are eating on picnic tables, basically on the street and wild dogs are wandering by... A big skip
